BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- The Michigan State Police say the Michigan Department of Transportation has ordered the 100th Street overpass over U.S. 131 closed after a crash Friday night.

We're told two semi trucks were hauling oversized shipping containers and hit the 100th Street overpass.

All northbound traffic on US-131 has resumed to normal, but theĀ 100th Street overpass over US-131 closed until further notice.

MDOT spokesman John Richard told FOX 17 that the detour route is Clyde Park and Division Avenue between 84th Street and 142nd Avenue. Message boards on southbound 131 prior to 84th Street and on northbound 131 prior to 142nd explain the detour.

This is the same detour that was in place when 100th Street was paved last summer.

U.S. 131 will be closed sometime this weekend for MDOT to investigate the overpass.

"When the investigation is complete, we will seek relief from the driver/company's insurance carrier," said Richard.
